Biography for Rachel Bilson

Rachel Sarah Bilson (often misspelled as Rachael Bilson) was born Aug. 25, 1981 (38 years ago) is an American actress. After growing up in a California show business family, she made her TV debut in 2003 (16 years ago) and subsequently became well-known for playing Summer Roberts on the prime time drama series The O.C. Bilson made her movie debut in the 2006 (13 years ago) movie The Last Kiss and starred in the 2008 (11 years ago) action/sci-fi movie Jumper.

Early years

Bilson was born in Los Angeles, the daughter of Janice (née Stango), a sex therapist, and Danny Bilson, a writer/director/producer. Rachel Bilson's father is Jewish American and her mother is a Philadelphia-born Italian American. Bilson's father comes from a show business family; her great-grandfather, George Bilson, (born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK) was the head of the trailer department at RKO Pictures, while her Brooklyn-born great-grandmother, Hattie Bilson, was a screenwriter and her grandfather, Bruce Bilson, is a movie director. Bilson's parents divorced during her childhood, and in 1997 (22 years ago), her father remarried Heather Medway, an actress and the mother of Bilson's half-sisters Hattie and Rosemary.

Bilson has been noted as having a "self-destructive, rebellious period" during her teen years. When she was 16, she and a group of her brother's friends were involved in a car accident, a head-on collision with another car. As a result, Bilson was unconscious for a few days, has a scar above her right eye, and sometimes suffers from migraines and memory loss. She has stated that the experience "changed" her, encouraging her to "stop... getting into trouble" and stopping her from "going down that road". Bilson graduated from Walter Reed Middle School in 1996 (23 years ago) and from Notre Dame High School in 1999 (20 years ago). During her time at Notre Dame, she appeared in productions of Bye Bye Birdie, Once Upon a Mattress and The Crucible.

Career

Bilson attended Grossmont College in a suburb of San Diego, but dropped out after one year, taking her father's advice to pursue a professional acting career and making several appearances in commercials, including advertisements for Subway restaurants, Raisin Bran and Pepto-Bismol. She made her screen acting debut in early 2003 (16 years ago), appearing in episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. Bilson was subsequently cast in The O.C., which debuted in Aug. 2003 (16 years ago). Her character, Summer Roberts, was initially intended to appear in only a few episodes, but became a series regular after a very successful run, as Bilson's on-screen romance with Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) became a noted aspect of the series.

As a result of the success of The O.C., Bilson has become well-known among teenage audiences. At the 2005 (14 years ago) Teen Choice Awards, Bilson collected three awards: "Choice Hottie Female", "Choice TV Actress (Drama)" and "Best Onscreen TV Chemistry" (jointly won with Adam Brody). In 2005 (14 years ago), Maxim magazine (55 walls) named her sixth in their annual "Hot 100 List"; in 2006 (13 years ago), the publication awarded her #14. The UK edition of FHM Magazine named her 28th in the 2006 (13 years ago) 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, while the US Edition Ranked her 77th in 2005 (14 years ago). Bilson was also named one of People magazine's "100 Most Beautiful People" in 2006 (13 years ago). In Jan. 2008 (11 years ago), radio host Howard Stern named her the "hottest chick in Hollywood."

Bilson's first movie role was in The Last Kiss, a romantic comedy-drama also starring Zach Braff. In the film, which opened in 2006 (13 years ago), Bilson plays a college student who seduces Braff's character. It was reported that Rachel Bilson called for a body double during the sex scenes because she was uncomfortable being nude in front of the camera. She does appear in the scene for the final film, albeit wearing a a flesh-colored bra. "I was terrified!" Bilson admitted. "But Zach really helped me through it, and we're friends, so he made it very comfortable, and Tony made it very comfortable, and it was actually a really nice setting. And I'm happy I did it, because I can say I did my first sex scene, and I never have to do that again!" One review of the movie noted that Bilson played the role with "surprising depth", although another critic described her role as "Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction as an airhead valley girl with a hot bod".

Bilson has stated that she prefers acting in feature movies to appearing on TV, and that she would like the kind of roles "that Natalie Portman (15 walls) and Scarlett Johansson (60 walls) are offered". She has specified that though she is "grateful" for the success of The O.C., she feels that the show "is over" and that she is "ready to move on" to movie roles. In sep. 2006 (13 years ago), unconfirmed reports surfaced that Bilson was linked to star in a movie version of the comic book character Wonder Woman; Bilson has stated that these reports were untrue.

In late 2006 (13 years ago), Bilson was cast in the role of Millie in Doug Liman's thriller Jumper (6 walls), as the replacement for actress Teresa Palmer; the movie was released on Feb. 14, 2008 (11 years ago). Rachel also appeared in a two-episode arc on The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz's NBC comedy, Chuck.

She appeared in a segment of the movie New York, I Love You, starring alongside Natalie Portman (15 walls), Hayden Christensen and Orlando Bloom. In sep. 2008 (11 years ago) she started shooting the indie romantic movie Waiting for Forever, directed by James Keach.

Personal life

Bilson began dating her The O.C. co-star Adam Brody in 2003 (16 years ago). In late 2006 (13 years ago), Bilson and Brody ended their relationship. In Mar. 2007 (12 years ago), she started dating Canadian actor Hayden Christensen, after meeting on the set of Jumper. The couple got engaged in dec. 2008 (11 years ago), over the holidays.

Bilson has been recognized by several media sources as being a "fashion junkie". She has described herself as having a "vintage" sense of style, and noted Kate Moss and Diane Keaton as inspirations. Her clothes often have a "boho" feel to them. She approached DKNY Jeans in late 2007 (12 years ago) with a view to design a clothing line with the popular fashion brand. Together they created Edie Rose. The collection was launched in sep. 2008 (11 years ago). An advertising image (wallpaper) was released in Jul. 2008 (11 years ago) which featured Bilson modelling her Edie Rose collection. Of her line, she said in an interview with Teen Vogue "I wanted to keep it as separate as possible from Rachel Bilson the actress. I'm hoping people will appreciate it for the clothes, not the person behind them." Much of her fashion collection was lost when her home was burglarized in May 2009 (10 years ago). Bilson has turned down requests to appear seminude in men's magazines, specifying that she feels that her body "is sacred" and "not there for the whole world to see". However, she has been featured in a pictorial in the men's magazines Stuff and GQ
